Conversion Therapy

Being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is NOT a disease, disorder, illness or shortcoming.

So-called "conversion therapy" is a sham treatment which aims to "cure" subjects of their innate sexual orientation or gender identity.

The practice of "conversion therapy" is actually not a clinically tested medical therapy at all. It's been tragically shown to lead to mental illness, drug use, homelessness, self-harm and suicide -- especially in kids and teens.

Let's send a clear message to the LGBTQ youth of Florida: you’re wanted and welcomed here.

The American Psychological Association, American Psychiatric Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Association of Social Workers and numerous other professional and medical organizations have come out in opposition to “conversion therapy” and have warned of the harm that it does to minors.

It's time for our state to join the cities of Miami Beach, Miami, Wilton Manors, North Bay Village, and numerous other jurisdictions in moving to outlaw so-called conversion "therapy."

Will you add your name?

Conversion therapy in Trump's America

At SAVE, we're proud to stand as the first line of defense for South Florida's LGBTQ community. But we'd be lying if we said we weren't scared for the fight ahead.

The unthinkable happened and Donald Trump won the presidency. Mike Pence, who favors twisted and abusive anti-LGBTQ conversion therapy, will be our vice president.

We must stand and fight, or else lose everything. Please give $50, $500 or whatever you can so your local LGBTQ advocate can fight for you to the very end. >>

We'll keep fighting tooth and nail to ban conversion therapy. The results prove we know how -- we did it in Miami, Miami Beach, Wilton Manors, and North Bay Village.

Mike Pence made his name as the Indiana governor who crusaded to legalize discrimination against popular revolt. With President Trump's ear, we shudder to think about his aims for LGBTQ Americans.

Give $50, $500 or whatever you can so your local LGBTQ advocate can fight to keep our future from slipping away under President Trump. >>

Mike Pence and the Trump administration have promised nothing less than an all-out assault on our rights. There has never been a more urgent time for you to show your support.

Thank you for standing with us.
